Sony has updated its high-end smartphone range, launching the 5.2-inch Xperia Z2. The new phone features a bigger screen, faster chip and longer battery than its previous marquee model, the Xperia Z1.
The device also features the same 21-megapixel camera as its predecessor and remains waterproof and dust-resistant.
The smartphone has upgraded its IPS screen, while the overall size of the device remains the same.
Sony also launched a new 10-inch waterproof Android tablet which it claims is the thinnest in the world.
The new Sony devices come after launches from Nokia and Samsung. Nokia announced its first-ever Android-compatible smartphone while Samsung launched its Gear 2 smartwatch. The Korean firm is expected to launch more products later today.
The new products were announced at Mobile World Congress, the world's largest telecoms and mobile phone trade show in Barcelona. Almost 100,000 phone executives and media are expected to attend the event, which will showcase future developments in the mobile technology.
